Disclaimer- I don't own Life With Derek


Casey woke up and for the first time in a long time she was comfortable. She had actually gotten a good night sleep; something that had become scarce to her lately. He somehow became the only thing she could think about and at night she was afraid to sleep because when she slept, she dreamt of him. She smiled, though, thinking about him; he was always her first thought of the day.

"Sleep well?"

Casey opened her eyes and saw Derek lying with his arm on his pillow, his head in his hand smirking down at her like he always did.

She screamed; it was a gut reaction. She had just woken up to find herself in bed with Derek Venturi, her step-brother.

"What the hell was that for?" Derek growled; Casey wondered if he would ever be a morning person.

"What the hell are you doing?" she screeched back. She flew out of the bed to the other side of the room. She silently thanked God both she and Derek were fully clothed.

"Last time I checked this is my room." Derek smirked again, "And you came to me in the middle of the night."

Casey blushed; last night's memories coming back to her. Again, she had dreamt of Derek. She hadn't meant to fall asleep with him; she only went to watch him sleep for a few minutes. But somehow her heart overpowered her head and she found herself fitting perfectly in his arms.

"That doesn't matter." Casey snapped, "This is wrong. So wrong."

Derek climbed out of his bed, "If you think this is so wrong then why did you come to me?"

"I…I…" Casey was at a loss of words.

"Don't tell me you didn't enjoy yourself," Derek said, walking towards her, "you seemed pretty content sleeping in my bed, with me."

Casey didn't want to admit it but she did enjoy it. She had finally gotten what she wanted; she got to be with Derek.

"It doesn't matter," Casey repeated, "This won't ever happen again."

"That's too bad." Derek whispered, Casey's back was up against the wall, Derek's arms on either side of her, keeping her from moving, "because I really enjoyed myself."

Casey looked up a Derek, wide-eyed. Derek, once again, gave Casey his famous smirk, knowing he had won her over.

He pulled Casey to him by the back of her neck, kissing her quickly. He held her as close to him as he possibly could before Casey broke the kiss to breathe.

"I plan on spending the rest of the day in bed," Derek whispered in her ear, "hopefully you'll join me."
